Talk about weather

Winter at the beach

We had a severe weather warning today, and I hope we’ve seen the worst of it.
Actually I’ve been inside the kitchen looking out the glass door each time the wind
got strong, and it was pretty exciting. At the most severe moment wind was severe,
and ice flew across my vision totally obscuring what was beyond it.

All afternoon and evening we've had very extreme winds. This painting seems right
because it’s about loving the water so much, we'd go to the shore in winter even when
the scene is bleak. This was on the shore of Lake Erie, where we used to go to Port
Stanley because of a phenomenal restaurant. When the chef left town, we stopped going
to that beach.

And with the extreme weather warnings for today, we were not going to any beach, or
even out of the house. But unless the weather is as extreme as it has been today, we have
a new favourite park by the water on Lake Ontario, and we go there as often as possible
all year around.

Have a safe and healthy and creative day.
